A STATEMENT FROM REED EXHIBITIONS – ORGANIZERS OF IBTM AMERICAS
Today, Reed Exhibitions Mexico has announced that due to the uncertainty in the region and around the world, the IBTM Americas, scheduled May 27 and 28, will now take place to August 26 and 27, 2020 at Centro Citibanamex.
The announcement was made following extensive consultation with all stakeholders and in alignment with the advice from the Mexican public health authorities regarding travel to and from impacted countries, and the public authority’s advice to restrict gatherings of 1,000 people or more.
IBTM Americas is the international trade show for the meetings and events industry where the decision makers connect and do business across North America, Latin America, Europe, and beyond.
Commenting on the announcement, David Hidalgo, Show Director, stated, “All our thoughts are with those impacted by COVID-19. The decision to postpone the shows was a difficult one. Our customers, partners and staff have worked diligently to make this IBTM Americas edition a reality, which is also special as it will be our tenth anniversary. However, our top priority is to ensure the health and safety of everyone at our events. We are confident that our rescheduled shows will continue to live up to the high standards participants have come to expect, and provide a vital service to the industry. We will be offering business, collaboration, and education opportunities, and creating ways for the meetings community to connect, and keep the industry moving forward during this difficult period.
“On behalf of Reed Exhibitions, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all exhibitors, partners, attendees, suppliers, media, and staff for their support during this challenging time, and we look forward to welcoming the global meetings and events industry community to Mexico City in August,” Hidalgo concluded.
